Re: 2 CH DR Loop Mod

Is this LDR that you mentioned? Yes. As you can see, if you disconnect the green wire (where 0% is printed next to the Mix pot), and LDR14 is faulty, you will get no sound at all via the loop. If you can find it and get at it on the board, try temporarily jumpering the signal side of LDR14 with a w...

Re: 2 CH DR Loop Mod

Sorry to bring this subject back again but I do have issue with this mod. It is probably something wrong with amp but any help would be greatly appreciated. What i did is exactly what 94Tremoverb suggested. I have disconnected green wire from pot on my TOV and when i put everything back my loop sou...

Re: Does it safe to play the Triple w/out all rectifiers tube?

Thank you for all the valuable information gentlemen. Now it’s clear to me, i can leave the rectifier sockets empty until i get new 5U4GB’s for replacement. When i notice the schematic (if those what provided in net for dual are the right one) in the two channel the selector switch completely disen...

Re: Does it safe to play the Triple w/out all rectifiers tube?

Dear forum, i just want to confirm if safe to play the 3 channel Triple Rectifier (the older one, not the reborn/multiwatt). Once i played my Triple with diodes rectification mode selected and no guitar sound coming out from the spkr cab, instead of static noise and whoosing. Since the amp a brand ...

Re: Help w/ in-ceiling speaker wiring

You can't get there from here. Speakers that will sound good for guitar will sound bad for TV or music, and vice versa - they're two totally different types of speakers and sound requirements. Also, I'd bet that guitar speakers will sound very bad mounted in a ceiling, although I've never actually t...

Re: Blue Angel and TC Electronic G-System

It's not worth bothering - just run all the FX in front of the amp. The loop is pointless anyway since it doesn't come after any of the distortion. The Blue Angel is purposely designed for only power-amp distortion, and if you do manage to make its preamp distort first, it sounds dreadful. If you st...

Re: Mesa V30 vs Celestion V30

One thing to remember is that Marhsall "Vintage" speakers were out for years before Celestion released the Vintage 30, and that back in the 80s G12H-30s weren't exactly vintage anything. Long story short, I have a hard time believing the goal was to make a speaker that sounded like a speaker they j...

Re: Mesa V30 vs Celestion V30

Probably the same reason why Eric Johnson rewired his 4X12 cabs to 8 ohms... Which is not possible, with four 16-ohm speakers. I read that quote too, and took it to mean that "running at 8 ohms" meant that he runs his amp at 8 ohms into a 16-ohm cabinet. I think you guys are getting hung up on the ...

Re: Newby on board-1/2 power mod ona a Maverick?

DO NOT try pulling two tubes - you'll fry the two in the amp. Like a lot of EL84 amps the Maverick is cathode-biased with a common cathode resistor, so it must be run with all four tubes. The only really practical way of reducing the power to half or below is an attenuator - the Dr.Z Airbrake seems ...

Re: Mesa V30 vs Celestion V30

Could 8 ohms vs 16 ohms have a say here? Yes. I would expect it to sound brighter and tighter at 16 ohms than 8 even if the speakers were identical, and even if the amp is correctly matched to each one. Also, do the speakers have equal break-in time? This makes a big difference with V30s, even long...

Re: Peavey to Mesa slave

Remove the power tubes from the Peavey. Then it will definitely be safe. It will also be safe if you remove the phase inverter tube, but make sure you get the right one! It should be the 12AX7 closest to the power tubes. You could put a shorted plug in the FX return, which will also mute the power s...

Re: NGD! NAD! Traded all of my Gibsons for 2 PRSi + a DC-3

Great deal! I personally prefer the 22-fret PRSs, but those are some very nice-looking guitars... DC-3s punch so far above their weight it's almost funny. The only thing that lets them down a bit is the stock speaker, if it's the Vintage Black Shadow (Eminence made) - too midrangy. Replace it with a...

It will be a '94 Rev G, since my Tremoverb is R-0039-something and it's May '94. The Tremoverb came after the Rev G.

The answer to the original question is Tremoverb, of course ;). Kind of "Rev H", although it was never given a Rev letter.

Re: 2 channel DR not loud enough

What screamingdaisy said - it's the cab. The speakers in the Mesa cab will be either V30s or C90s, which are both 100dB speakers with strong midrange (higher mids for the V30, lower mids for the C90). The speakers in the 1960 will be G12T-75s which are 97dB speakers with a hollow midrange. That mean...

Re: Noticed an extra ceramic cap after a tech job.

It looks like it's in parallel with the treble cap on the Orange channel, which would increase upper mids on that channel. C24 is the mid cap for the Red channel, so the 47K resistor and the cap immediately below that are the slope resistor and treble cap for the Red channel; thus the "vertical" (in...
